To some the glamorous cash heavy sport of pro cycling is about Yellow or Green jerseys, bikes that cost the cash equivalent of a small mortgage and wagon trains of expensive team cars to panda to the every need of the riders, a bit like having your mom along on a date. Today as the saints of the sport sipped on their energy drinks in hotel size luxury buses that carry them between stages like rock stars on tour, the disciples took to the course for their fifteen minuets of fame.
A race before a race
Some race for a yellow jersey others for the coveted yellow bib
In for the cash or racing for pennies
Sisters doing it for themselves
